bush got for his handling of katrina, this became a very different situation. what has happened here, i think, are a combination of things. people saw the president at work. they saw him essentially being a good steward in a time of serious crisis. they saw the ability for him to reach across the aisle and to work with the republican governor, chris christie, the governor of new jersey. the third thing i think that came out of all of this is the sense that government has a role to play. and that in all three of those instances, good policy and good professional work probably was very good politics for the president. having said that, it is important to know that the change we have seen in our own polling from our earlier work is minuscule. it is not as though there has suddenly been a large band wagon to the president's side. giffords been some movement in terms of the jobs rating -- there has been some movement in terms of the jobs rating and how the -- how he is handling the economy. possibly a little pick up in the area of feeling positively about the direction of the nation. all
